VC Rocks! Blog Hop - Punches Galore

Welcome to the last VC Rocks! Hop of the summer.  Those of you who follow me know it has been a really long time since I posted.  I spent more than a week helping my daughter and her husband move, then picked up a virus that has kept me in bed for almost two weeks!  So I haven't had much energy to stamp lately, but picked two cards from our card buffet that I hadn't  blogged about yet that use punches.

Rosette Christmas
The first card pictured I have been so inspired by every one on the web making rosettes.  They are so fun and easy to make especially now that Stampin' Up! has introduced the "Simply Scored" Scoring tool starting September 1st.  It also has a very unique feature added to it and that is place markers.  You just place them on the lines you want to score, no more remembering every time!
The top layer was punched out with the 2 1/2 Circle punch, then it was layered onto the scalloped circle that is on the new Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die in the new catalog.

This next card I fell in love with - purses out of the Cupcake Builder punch - just so cute!  This card could be used for a Thank You, Get Well, Thinking of You... the possibilities are endless.  First you cut out three of the bottoms of the cupcake and turn them upside down.  Then punch three 1/2 circles from the 3/4" Circle Punch, this makes the flap of the purse(On our circle punches at the half-way point, the punch dips down).  Then reinsert the circle punch into the former punched area and punch a slice for the handles.  I attached a pearl and after gluing the entire purse together, used dimensionals to prop it up on the card.  Too cute and so easy to make.
